MikeTravel's entry for the #Creative-Steem Photo Editing Contest #1steemCreated with Sketch.


It's New Year's Eve, and I was feeling a little sad, and lonely this evening. I decided to work on this project hosted by the @creativesteem community which is ran by @creativesoul.


I was inspired by the quote "Art is an escape from the banal aspects of daily life." by an unknown author.
I altered it and changed it to fit my current mood.
I believe there is truth to speculation that there is some correlation between melancholy and creativity. It gave me an idea to put my photo as if I was climbing and escaping to get inside the colored bowl. It sorta reminded me of the film "Pleasantville."
What do you think?

I have never heard about the correlation between melancholy and creativity...just the one about insanity and creativity. Now that I think of it...sadness has resulted in a lot of great works... and the reaction too has been larger than those that result from happiness. I really should have made that connection sooner...lol.

Anyway...I wish you a happy new year and hope the loneliness will be replaced with friendship now that you have joined this community :)

Have you considered joining the PAL Network?
I am almost always around to chat and there are also lots of other people around most hours. There is a radio show...you can ask any questions you have about steemit...and there are lots of rooms and activities.


Thank you so much! I was alone on New Years that made me sad, so I focused my energy on doing something creative. By doing that, I could go beyond my pain and loneliness. One of the reasons, I travel often. It’s my other form of escapism.
